Herron Hill's Weeping Camel


On Wednesday several of the milkers got very sick from eating some bad grain. Jessie and Wronny are fine now. Winnie, Jr. is doing pretty well. Peaches was in terrible shape but she has perked up. The farmer is going to let her dry off. Xie Xie is still a little glassy-eyed and looks like she lost about fifteen pounds in three days. We will have to see if she can keep milking.

We lost Cammy.

We are all so sorry! It is never easy to say goodbye to our friends. I think you have had a very tough time this year and I think you need some Peanuts - maybe 12 dozen.

This must be one of the very hard parts about farming. I bet it breaks your heart every time you lose a baby, even if they aren't a baby anymore. I'm so sorry.

So horrible. I can't imagine the goatfarmer's helpless feeling when she realized what was going on. I, too, have the same question. What was wrong with the grain? How were you able to finally determine that's what made everyone sick?
Sorry for pretty Cammy.
